At Hannon Coach we offer the only scheduled direct, through coach between Belfast and Glasgow. Our coach service is perfect for commuting, visiting family and friends or a city break in Glasgow or Belfast. Travelling with us is a cost-efficient, easy, comfortable travel solution and a great alternative to flying.


Choosing to travel with Hannon Coach is a great travel alternative because:

  • Transparent Pricing

The Hannon Coach Glasgow – Belfast Express Coach Service is £39 each way. This includes the cost of the ferry, environmental charges and bags go free, (up to 2 x 23 Kg Hold bags and 1 carry on). We have set firm all-inclusive prices which means there is no from pricing. We don’t want to be advertising estimated prices; we show you the total cost of the coach service including any extra costs. We have all seen airline flight fares advertising ‘from £19.99’ and to be caught out with additional costs such as luggage and airport transfers on top of that.

  • Bags included

Included in our coach fare is a generous baggage allowance. Each passenger travelling is allowed 2 x 23 Kg Hold Bags and 1 Carry-On Bag. We can even accommodate oversized bags and sports equipment if you plan advance. Luggage is included in the set price for the Express Service. Because ours is a through service and the same coach is with you from start to finish, there is no need to worry about lugging heavy bags around the airport with you. With Hannon Coach, simply put your bags in the hold of the bus as you board for a smooth, easy, and stress-free journey.

  • Great for last-minute bookings

When booking a plane ticket, it is usually months in advance. People do it to get a good deal on tickets as they become up to 10 times more expensive when the travel date is getting closer. We allow convenient online booking, up to 60 minutes before departure and at Hannon Coach the price of our tickets stays the same. We don’t hike prices on busy days either.

  • Flexible Service

Also, in case you want to change your departure date or time, with bus tickets it is no problem. Nowadays, everything is done via the Internet. You can easily buy your bus tickets at www.hannoncoach.com or talk to one of our staff over the phone. There is no need to print your ticket out because you will be sent an e-ticket via email which you just have to show to the driver.

  • No Airport Hassle

We pick you up and drop you off right in the city centre which means there’s no airport hassle. We all know what the airports are like, queue after queue, having to be in the airport more than an hour before your flight and facing all the fuss at airport security. Check out our TripAdvisor, https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Review-g186470-d14940400-Reviews-Hannon_Coach-Belfast_Northern_Ireland.html, the most frequent comment is about just how stress-free the journey is. Hannon Coach offers a stress-free journey, our passengers can arrive at their departure point around 10 mins before departure to board the coach and load their luggage safely onto the coach. Once you’ve arrived, you won’t have to wait at baggage claim or worry that the airline has lost your luggage, you can unload everything immediately from the coach, allowing more time to get the important part of your trip started.

  • No Airport Transfers

When travelling with Hannon Coach, you won’t have to get any airport transfers. Airport transfers take time and extra money to get to and from the airport. Travelling on our coach means you won’t have to organise any transfers because we take you directly from door to door, city centre to centre. The coach takes you directly from Belfast City Centre (Donegall Square West) to Glasgow City Centre (Buchanan Bus Station). Our pickup and drop off points are centrally located which is very convenient for all our passengers because they are right beside all the bars, restaurants, cafes, and hotels.

  • No expensive airport car parking

You won’t have to worry about booking your car into the expensive airport car park. Hannon Coach has a pickup and drop off point in Glasgow and Belfast City Centre. Travelling with Hannon Coach minimises all the additional costs of travel and offers a hassle-free travelling environment.

  • Comfortable travel

We all know planes can be cramped and crowded and the seats are very close together and can make your flight very uncomfortable. Our luxury, touring class coaches are great for journeys like our Glasgow to Belfast Express. The coaches have reclining seats with lots of leg room and a toilet on board to ensure comfortable travel for all our passengers. It is much easier to sit back, relax, and enjoy the view. There is also air-conditioning on board which refreshes the air with fresh air rather than just recycling the air on board.

Our coach service is family friendly and infants travel free with an accompanying adult. Passengers can carry 2 x 23 Kg Hold bags and 1 Carry-on Bag on board the coach. There is Free Wi-Fi the whole way there to keep you entertained on your phone. The coach travels the whole way with you and doesn’t just drop you off at the ferry terminal.


Other Reasons

  • Environmentally Friendly

Research shows that travelling on one plane is the equivalent of driving for approximately eleven days. This is because planes move about ten times faster than cars, meaning they use more energy and fossil fuels. A fully booked coach, however, means that the carbon footprint is shared amongst each of the passengers, so buses will produce approximately five to ten times fewer emissions than an aircraft. For those conscious of travelling environmentally friendly and reducing their carbon footprint, buses far exceed that of airplanes.



  • Face masks required throughout the journey
  • Increased hygiene and cleaning schedule
  • Reduced capacity on board every coach – less than 50%
  • Social distancing as per Government Requirements
  • Hand sanitiser available on all coaches
